WHAT IS MEDITATION?
Yoga and Meditation is a balancing technique. Through balance, holistic awareness expands and the many benefits of meditation begin to unfold. Many wonders why it is necessary to meditate after practicing Yoga asanas/ postures. One of the many benefits of practicing yoga asanas/ postures is the fact that it allows us to slip into meditation effortlessly. Meditation being one of the main aspects of Yoga, it’s essential that we sit for meditation after practicing Yoga asanas and pranayama; else it is like preparing our dinner but not eating it! In meditation, one delves deep into the self.
Yoga Meditation is not actually a separate aspect of Yoga, due to the fact that Yoga is meditation. However, the phrase Yoga Meditation is being used here to discriminate between Yoga Meditation and the now popular belief that Yoga is about physical postures. Yoga or Yoga Meditation is a complete process of itself, only a small, though useful part of which relates to the physical body. In the Yoga Meditation of the Himalayan tradition, one systematically works with senses, body, breath, the various levels of mind, and then goes beyond, to the center of consciousness. Yoga Meditation of the Himalayan tradition is holistic in that it not only deals systematically with all levels, but also involves a broad range of practices, including meditation, contemplation, prayer, and mantra, as well as the preparatory practices leading up to these.
